Jun Tsuboi, Takeshi Kuboki, Kazutoshi Kato, Wide-capture-range, high-precision wavelength stabilization within ±50 MHz for flexible-grid wavelength division multiplexing by photomixing technique, Jpn. J. Appl. Phys., 10.7567/JJAP.55.08RB10, Vol. 55, 8, 2016.07, The lasers for the flexible-grid wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) system are required to have high precision of wavelength stability. Previously, we proposed the wavelength-controlling system of the Distributed FeedBack Laser Diode (DFB-LD) with the photomixing technique and a microwave filter to precisely measure the optical frequency error from the target value. To enlarge the wavelength-capture range, we improve the system to detect the wavelength error with two different microwave filters in parallel. Experimental results show that the wavelength-capture range is extended up to 4 GHz while the wavelength error is still kept within ±50 MHz..

Kimura Ryoga, Tatsumoto Yudai, Sakuma Kazuki, Onji Hirokazu, Shimokozono Makoto, Ishii Hiroyuki, Kato Kazutoshi, Sub-microsecond wavelength stabilization of tunable lasers with the internal wavelength locker, Jpn. J. Appl. Phys., 10.7567/JJAP.55.08RB07, Vol. 55, 8, 08RB07, 2016.07, We proposed a method of accelerating the wavelength stabilization after wavelength switching of the tunable distributed amplification-distributed feedback (TDA-DFB) laser using the internal wavelength locker to reduce the size and the cost of the wavelength control system. The configuration of the wavelength stabilization system based on this locker was as follows. At the wavelength locker, the light intensity after an optical filter is detected as a current by the photodiodes (PDs). Then, for estimating the wavelength, the current is processed by the current/voltage-converting circuit (IVC), logarithm amplifier (Log Amp) and field programmable gate array (FPGA). Finally, the laser current is tuned to the desired wavelength with reference to the estimated wavelength. With this control system the wavelength is stabilized within 800 ns after wavelength switching, which is even faster than that with the conventional control system..

Pokharel, Performance Analysis of Multicode OCDM Networks Supporting Elastic Transmission With QoS Differentiation, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, 10.1109/TCOMM.2015.2512922, 64, 2, 741-752, 2016.02, A multicode optical code-division multiplexing (OCDM) is proposed to support the dynamic changes in the requested traffic demand in OCDM networks by adapting the number of allocated codes according to the requested transmission rate. In order to support time-variant data rates and multiservice transmissions; a multicode variable-weight 2D one-coincidence frequency hopping code/optical orthogonal code (OCFHC/OOC) is employed as the signature code in the proposed system. Two multicode assignment methods, namely, random multicode assignment (RMA) policy and uniform multicode assignment (UMA) policy, are presented. For each code assignment method, we drive the probability density function (pdf) of the number of active codes in each wavelength group. The bit error probability (BEP), the probability of degradation, and the blocking probability are derived as network performance key parameters. The proposed system has a simplified routing and code assignment process with a lower blocking probability. Our numerical results indicate that the network teletraffic capacity and blocking probability can be improved significantly using UMA policy and call admission control..

We experimentally confirmed the effectiveness of the power combination by synchronizing the phases of the THz wave by the mechanical optical delay lines and also demonstrated the same functionality at the lightwave-circuit-based optical phase control system.

32. Ahmed E. Farghal, Hossam M. H. Shalaby, Kazutoshi Kato, Ramesh K. Pokharel, Optical Code-Division Multiplexing (OCDM) Networks Adopting Code-Shift Keying/Overlapping PPM Signaling: Proposal and Performance Analysis, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, 10.1109/TCOMM.2015.2467372, 63, 10, 3779-3788, 2015.10, Optical code-division multiplexing (OCDM) systems use short pulses compared with bit-duration to achieve high transmission rate. The use of short pulses poses several problems as a result of group velocity dispersion (GVD), intersymbol interference (ISI) (due to avalanche photodiode (APD) buildup time), and receivers limited bandwidth. In this paper, an OCDM system employing code-shift keying (CSK) and overlapping pulse-position modulation (OPPM) signaling is proposed and theoretically investigated. By using CSK while maintaining same data rate, the chip duration can be increased to counteract the GVD effect in 2D OCDM systems. Moreover, by increasing the chip duration, the chip rate is decreased and the stringent requirement on receiver bandwidth is relaxed. In addition, using overlapping property in OPPM allows for further chip duration increase. We consider using correlation receivers with hard-limiters and APDs at the receiver side. The bit error probability (BEP) of the proposed system is derived taking into account the impacts of APD noise, thermal noise, GVD, ISI, and multiple-access interference (MAI). A performance comparison between OOK-, PPM-, OPPM-OCDM and the proposed system is carried out. Our results reveal that the use of CSK/OPPM-OCDM with data rate constraint allows the reduction of MAI, GVD and ISI effects with improved spectral efficiency..
33. Tadao Nagatsuma, Kazutoshi Kato, Jeffrey Hesler, Enabling technologies for real-time 50-Gbit/s wireless transmission at 300 GHz, Proceedings of the 2nd ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication, ACM NANOCOM 2015, 10.1145/2800795.2800824, 2015.09, There has been a growing interest in the application of terahertz (THz) waves to broadband wireless communications. Particularly, use of THz waves at frequencies above 275 GHz is one of the big concerns among researchers, because these frequency bands have not yet been allocated for specific active services, and there is a possible opportunity to utilize extremely large bandwidths for ultra-broadband wireless communications. In this paper, we describe photonics-based approaches to realizing most practical and robust 300-GHz-band wireless links to meet and explore realworld applications at the earliest opportunity as a technology driver. We present enabling technologies for a real-time 50-Gbit/s transmission at over 20-m distance..

J. Appl. Phys., 10.7567/JJAP.53.08MB11, Vol. 53, 8, 08MB11, 2014.07, We proposed a method of accelerating the wavelength switching of a tunable distributed amplification distributed feedback (DFB) laser by feedforward control. From experimental laser responses, we designed and simulated feedforward controllers using MATLAB/Simulink so as to reduce the time for wavelength stabilization. We applied this method to two different cases involving a laser drive circuit with a large output current and a 50 ns rise time, and a laser drive circuit with a moderate output current and a 5 ns rise time. In both cases, we showed that the wavelength switching times were improved from 450 to 150 ns and from 75 to 35 ns, respectively. From these results, the proposed control technique is confirmed to be efficient for possible practical applications..
